Kristen Stewart has said that the music she listens to on a project influences her work on set, telling SPIN in 2009, "I think about it quite a bit when I'm working."
So what's Kristen listening to, then?
Though Stewart has a demonstrated love of vintage band tees and hoodies, she's been sticking to more contemporary artists of late. At least that was the case at South by Southwest when she told USA Today, "I listen to The Shins and Radiohead and Interpol. And we sawBand of Horses last night, and that was awesome, because they're, like, my favorite band right now. I love Camera Obscura and Jenny Lewis."
When she was on the New Moon set, however, Stewart was interested in darker fare. She claimed to have listened to a song by Aussie singer-songwriter Sia back to back with Joy Division's "Shadowplay" incessantly while in Italy. Kristen has also been spotted hanging out at concerts by Kings of Leon and San Antonio's pride and joy, Girl in a Coma.
Although Kristen plays guitar and sings — as evidenced by her roles in Into the Wild and The Runaways — don't expect her to start a band of her own anytime soon. She's way too private, telling USA Today, "I'm used to making movies and having people take that from me. But to have my thing be somebody else's experience right now ... I could never be in a band. I feel the same way. I could only ever do that playing somebody else."
